Watch the short film of Nae Pasaran

The short film of Nae Pasaran is now available online to watch for free.

The short film was commissioned in 2013, through the Scottish Documentary Institute’s Bridging the Gap scheme for emerging filmmakers.

It became the starting point for the research that led to the feature film, which will be released next year.
